Getting It Right - Current Local Stats on Covid Vac

Michael from Trentham

The Mayor of Upper Hutt I am led to believe couldn't get it right a week or so ago when the UHCC slack-on-vax regulations were announced, so I have in my little hot hands the latest Covid vaccinated/unvaccinated stats (as at 6/12/21).

8000 eligible people in the Hutt Valley are unvaccinated.

The HV has 94% at least partially vaccinated and 89% fully vaccinated and these stats makes us almost the exact replication of NZ ( 94 and 88) as a whole.

The best of Upper Hutt is the Trentham area with 94% fully vaccinated and the worse is the Maoribank area with 83% fully vaccinated. But Maoribank is not the worse performing area in the HV - that stat belongs to Delaney Park area, Stokes Valley at around 76% fully vaccinated.

Just under 300,000 eligible people are unvaccinated in NZ

Pet of the Day: Snuffy and PK.

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Helen Moore, from Napier, sent us this sad but lovely story on Snuffy and PK.
"Snuffy, aged 17, a fierce defender of her property, a drama queen and dedicated rodent hunter. Died from kidney failure late 2018. PK, a massive show off and occasional thief, her sister, died aged 19 early in 2021, a week after my husband died. She comforted me beforehand even though she was unwell herself, snuggling up and licking the tears from my face."

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.

"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.

Dale Hinkley from is the proud mum of Nell.
"Here is a photo of Nell from Waikanae - playing in the sea here. She is seven. Three quarters miniature poodle and one quarter springer spaniel. She has a wonderful nature - rarely barks, never fusses and adores all humans."
